Outside my window...It is sunny but cold.

I am thinking...It has really been a relaxing day

I am thankful for...Getting the laundry done!

From the kitchen...A chicken is stewing

I am wearing...A blue top, blue jeans, blue socks, none of which go together!

I am creating...A nice evening meal: chicken, dressing, cole slaw, baked potato

I am going...To church tomorrow

I am reading...The Master Key System, Charles Haanel

I am hoping..The sun is shining tomorrow

I am hearing...The dryer running

Around the house...I have been picking up the clutter

One of my favorite things...A bubble bath

A few plans for the rest of the week...Enjoy it!

Tracey has asked me to explain the "Double Your Money" entry on a previous blog.
It is actually an idea I read on another blog that I thought sounded challenging and fun!
You can get a fuller explanation there.
Basically, you start by finding your seed money. It can't be money you already have.
Then you double it, until your reach $1M.
If you start with a penny, you will reach $1M in 28 steps.
You have to use money you find, items you may find to sell or trade, or investments you can make when you amass enough cash.

For example, let's say I've amassed $5 in the "Double My Money" fund and there's going to be yard sales in my community one weekend. I could take $3 of the $5 and buy a 12 pack of whatever soda is on sale that weekend for a quarter a can, put it on ice, and sell it for 50 cents a can. I would recover my $3 investment and would have made $3 more, growing my fund from $5 to $11 in a Saturday morning.

When the fund grows to say $1,000, you could invest in a mutual fund, put some money into a certificate of deposit, etc. Anything to keep it growing. And, of course, keep picking up change!

I think the point to this whole project is that most of us think we don't have enough to do anything with, when in reality if we just picked up enough pennies we would all be millionaires!

The truth is the little things we do every day really do count!

Home from work today.

Got it in the throat.

Can barely talk.
